Effects of StressOne of the vital issues surrounding stress is how it affects the student's ability to learn. Many students can assess stressful events as a "challenge" or "threat." If they evaluate their college education as a threat, then they are likely to feel helpless and lost. If they evaluate it as a challenge, then they this increases their learning capacity. Moderate stress is the best for students who are learning. Low and high levels of stress drastically reduces the learning ability of a college student (Weinstein, 2004). Students who are experiencing stress tend to be "hyper careful." They will work so hard to get good results and in the end over study and fail. Those who find exams a stress will do an exam quickly so that they can get rid of the stress.High levels of stress among college students have led to an increase of student dropout rates. Students feel that they cannot cope with all the stressing activities and opt out. The physical and emotional health of students is usually at risk (Hudd, 2000). This is due to overworking to meet deadlines and meeting financial obligations.Moderate stress can make students learn. Stress among college students can be reduced only if students are left to control their education system rather than the system controlling them. They should be given proper feedback on their performance to avoid the build-up of stress. Peer counseling, formation of support groups for students and mentoring can help students to cope with their own emotions and thoughts. This can help students in being successful in education, social and financial fields. Students should be taught well and encouraged so that they can feel motivated, and comprehended. Academicians and educational researchers should get a curriculum that stresses the importance of physical activity and socialization. It is wise to note that lecturers and teachers should be paid well so that they can teach well (Neal, 1985).
